Cowboys WR Dez Bryant content, looking to stay healthy

Every person would change something (or things) about their past if they could be given the chance. Dez Bryant @DezBryant would. He knows he has made very-public mistakes off the field, but he and his head coach, Jason Garrett, say that Bryant is now a different person than the one who dropped in the 2010 draft due to character concerns and was arrested last summer after a physical dispute with his mother.
"I'd say I found myself," Bryant said via the Cowboys' official website. "I'm comfortable with my life and I'm enjoying being in the NFL. Wish it could have been a couple of years back, but I had to go through a couple of things to figure it out."
Bryant's improvements as a person have coincided with his improvements as a player. Garrett said Bryant "has gotten some of these other things in his life kind of organized and together, and it reflects in his play. We've seen growth as a player, we've seen growth as a person and we love seeing him every day because he's getting better before our eyes."
Bryant posted a huge stat line in 2012, catching 92 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns despite battling back pain and playing with a broken finger. The back issue hasn't completely disappeared, but it hasn't stopped Bryant from participating in organized team activities. The finger has been repaired. Bryant's offseason has been quiet, and now he is focusing on increasing his endurance so he can be even better in 2013.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bryant also needs to improve his communication with quarterback Tony Romo after they had some disastrous lapses last year. Still, he was unstoppable at times and is just 24 years old. The ceiling has yet to be reached here, and Bryant should be the second WR off the board in most drafts.
